Bankhead Adventures

11 December 2007

Well-Read

In the bustle of packing for a trip on Thanksgiving Day (which was also her birthday), Amy neglected to pack any entertainment devices for James during the 8 hours we'd be spending in the car. No books, no toys, no games. Oops. So when the inevitable moment came when James's protests of boredom became more than Paul and Amy could handle, we handed him the National Park Newspaper the ranger had given us at the entrance. Thankfully, he seemed to have gotten over his carsickness and spent the next 45 minutes studiously reading the paper, albeit sideways, occasionally making insightful comments on the articles, such as, "Bear. Tree. Climbing."

  • That is hilarious. He is such a funny kid. He may not out grow is fascination with maps. Byron still loves to read maps. Can't wait to see you guys.

  • What a coolie. Thanks for sharing these little moments. They help me to notice and appreciate the cuteness of my own kiddos better. I miss James!

  • The horror. Nothing to entertain the child but a paper. Y'all have produced quite an advanced child. Lulu would have been screaming and whining within minutes. I cannot wait to hear what the "fetus" is accomplishing (by the way... loved the fetus comment on our Christmas card)
